for couples that want something more than an all inclusive elopement package or a hike on an overcrowded trail.
Imagine This Instead:
– Getting married at an adventure eco lodge in the heart of the Alaskan wilderness with your favorite people
– Catamaran Sailing adventure around the Hawaiian Islands
– 4×4 Off roading adventure wedding in Utah
– Spending the day riding horses, visiting hot springs & having a picnic under the stars
– Spending your wedding day doing all the things you love with whoever you choose to invite!
“Beautiful photography and a magical day.
Ariel was perfect for us! Ariel's energy and excitement was contagious. She helped us put together the perfect celebration and then captured it beautifully.
She is so easy and fun to work with!”
I'm stoked you're here!
As an elopement photographer and outdoor enthusiast I get absolutely giddy with excitement when helping fellow adventure seekers, travelers, dreamers & fun-loving couples plan their experience based, intentional wedding days.
I live on the road full time traveling the country in my dream home on wheels – a 38' long fully off grid, converted bus.
Some of my favorite adventures include: Backpacking and ice climbing in Alaska, hiking the Napali Coast on Kauai, trekking in the jungles of Costa Rica.

We can't say enough how absolutely wonderful our experience was with Ariel at AMW Studios. From our very first conversation, she helped us to formulate a plan for an elopement that included our families and still allowed for us to have some alone time on a hike. She also helped us find the perfect location and vendors to make our dream a reality. The whole day was exactly as we imagined and we absolutely love the photos that we're able to share with friends and family who weren't in attendance. Many people have told us that they didn't fully understand our plan until they saw the pictures and could see so clearly the joy of our intimate celebration. Would absolutely recommend her!
Beautiful photography and a magical day. Ariel was perfect for us! The thought of planning a wedding (even a scaled down elopement) overwhelmed me, but Ariel's energy and excitement was contagious. I am so happy we reached out to her. She helped us put together the perfect celebration and then captured it beautifully. She is so easy and fun to work with!
Ariel was a DREAM to work with! She is such a go-with-the-flow / roll-with-the-punches kind of person and she goes above and beyond the call of a regular photographer! She is so sweet, direct/quick, professional, and can work with anybody
